My Gay Pride Video and the Anglican Church
Wow! Talk about a Big Gay Party. I've never seen so many people in all my life.
Talk about a awesome parade.
Hundreds of thousands of people of all ages, colours, and creeds...gay and straight...joining together to have fun...celebrate OUR struggle. And send out a powerful message of tolerance and inclusion to the whole world.
So how sad that that the Anglican Church of Canada would choose that very day to send out a message of hate.
They can qualify it all they want. But by refusing to even BLESS same-sex unions that's the message they are sending out. That we're not human enough...and our love isn't good enough...to even merit recognition..
They bless pets. But they won't bless us. Isn't that nice? Who let these bigot bitchops out?
Of course a religious blessing means just as much to me as a fucking fatwa. It's all ju ju monkey crazy nonsense... and SHITE..... as far as I'm concerned.
But a lot of good gay people are disappointed...and so is my good Anglican mum...so I'm pissed off.
But I shouldn't be... I saw so many loving gay couples...and happy gay families this weekend...who don't need to be blessed because they already ARE...
And so much pride, and energy, and inclusiveness, and tolerance that I know that these religious wackos will never be able to hold us back...or return us to a darker time.
Because they're ugly, inhuman and life denying ....and we're beautiful and full of life and love.
If you don't believe me...just check out this little video I made ....
And that was just a SMALL part of the parade.....
But you see what I mean? Those crazy bigots don't stand a chance.
Whatever they say....whatever they do...our beautiful freedom march just keeps getting bigger and stronger every year. ....coz we're UNSTOPPABLE!!!!!!!
Thank you to the organizers and all the volunteers who made Gay Pride Toronto such a success. And to all the gay AND straight people who made it such a great PARTY.
And a special thanks to my friends and other boys in the Gay Army's Water Gun Brigade...who tried SOOOOO hard to soak me ....even though I was only armed with a CAMERA!!!!
But MISSED....I was too quick for them....nyah nyah nyah...
Only to have a teeny tyke in a school bus carefully aim his water pistol out of the window and get me between the eyes....The little killer.
What a laugh. What a blast.Thank you EVERYONE!!
I'm so HAPPY and PROUD to be gay
See you all next year....
